The majority of the additions are in Africa and the Caribbean/Central/South American regions, but there are also a few countries in the Asia/Pacific, and one little island in the Mediterranean. As you'll notice, we have the number listed as 19*, because Google has Trinidad and Tobago listed separately. Google is referring to "regions", but we are referring to countries; and so, to be accurate, we're taking the two islands as one country. The new countries added are:
Americas: Bahamas, Bolivia, Guyana, Honduras, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago
Africa: Angola, Botswana, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania
Asia/Pacific: Fiji, Nepal, Sri Lanka
Interestingly, Google isn't listing any of these new additions as having limited coverage, which means you will get driving and walking directions at the very least. We have confirmed that is the case in Jamaica and Fiji, and assume it to be true for the rest.

Google isn't wrong. Trinidad and Tobago are actually two islands. They're ruled by one government and use the same currency, but they are indeed two separate bodies.

Google Maps has been indispensable for me, be it looking for an address or looking for a late night eatery (surprisingly less and less around in NYC, San Diego is expected). The transit directions are great and quite accurate and give me a good estimate on how long the trip is expected to take. Now waiting on Nokia to make their maps available to Android devices.
